Thunder Mountain Stan’s Enduro Series Finals

The Maxxis Stan’s Enduro Finals offers 150% Series Points

This event is open to all, even if it’s your first race

Time to register for this weekend’s Maxxis ESC Stans Enduro Series Finals Thunder Mountain! Hoping not to jinx us but the weather looks fantastic for racing and camping!

Camping at Thunder is sold out but we rented the Charlemont Fairgrounds to keep our camping community together. It’s a lot nicer than the parking lot and only about a mile from the bike park.

Please note there is no other overnight parking or camping in Charlemont, including the school grounds. The town will be patrolling as they received some complaints after our last event. If you wish to boondock, please do it outside the town limits.

Race Registration Will Be Available Onsite

The Maxxis Stan’s Enduro Series Finals offers 150% Series Points

Thunder Mountain Bike Park has such a large amount of technical trails that it allows them to create a well-rounded enduro race. The addition of the Warfield Inn trails has added some pedaling to a lift-oriented day of racing.

The trails at Thunder are steep, and a lot of your time will be spent traversing across off-camber, root-filled sections. The jagged rocks and roots on the Back-of-the-shed trails are some of the most challenging lines out there. Riders will be treated to spectacular views of the Berkshire Mountains from the top of the bike park, with plenty of options on the way down!

Parking Lot at Thunder – A number of people have asked about setting up pits at Thunder Mountain for the weekend.  Due to parking restraints, pits must be compact and Thunder Mountain reserves the right to ask for any pits to be removed if necessary. No pits shall remain up overnight.

The only camping in the lot is for RV and Trailers that have paid reserved spots issued by Thunder Mountain. These spots are SOLD OUT. There is NO OVERNIGHT PARKING at Thunder

CAMPING –

No alcohol, open fires, or fireworks are allowed at the fairgrounds.  No electrical or RV hookups exist, but it is a beautiful old New England fairground with plenty of places to park your rig or set up a tent.

There are bathrooms in the grandstands.

The timing chips have a capacity of 100 time stamps and will quickly run out of space. After reading 100 time stamps, the timing chip will no longer read any more times. As a result, no times will be recorded, and you will be declared a DNF.
